This pack contains certain references and procedures that you will need to be aware of. It is not a full statement of all the
legislation, rules, practices or procedures of the Enforcement of Judgments Office (EJO). It does however provide helpful
information in how to commence proceedings in the EJO

Enforcement Phrases – some common phrases or terms that are used in this pack and in our processes are explained
below
Phrase/Term                                                   Meaning
Award,        This is an enforceable document produced by the Court that certifies the decision of the Court. You
Decree, Order need this to be able to use the services of the EJO. Other enforceable documents which the EJO can
or Judgment   enforce are a Certificate of Money Provisions, European Small Claims Order, European Enforcement
              Order and European Order for Payment.

Money            This is a court judgment which has ordered that a sum of money is to be recovered.
Judgment
Form 2           This is a Notice of Intent to enforce a Non -Money Judgment.

Form 4           This is an Application to enforce a Non-Money Judgment.

Certificate of   This is the Certificate that states the monetary value of an amount of costs awarded on a judgment (if it
Taxation         a monetary value is not stated on a judgment). It is a separate process and you will not be able to
                 recover any ‘costs’ until it is supplied with the original judgment. This document can be sought by
                 applying to the County Court in respect of County Court judgments, or the Court of Judicature of
                 Northern Ireland Taxing Office.
Interest         This is allowed if the judgment amount exceeds £200.00. It is calculated at the rate of 8% per annum
                 and the rate is set by the Court Rules. EJO can only collect interest (if claimed) from the date of the
                 court judgment to the date you apply for enforcement.

                 Interest = Outstanding Debt x (No. of days from Court date to date on Form 4) x 0.08
                                  365
Judgments        This is a public record of all judgments accepted in the EJO for enforcement and contains information
Register         about enforced judgments (extending 6 years from the date a search is carried out). The search can be
                 done on-line via the courts website (www.courtsni.gov.uk), or a member of the office can do this on
                 your behalf. There is a fee charged for each – details of which can be found on our fee list within this
                 pack – but you should note it is cheaper to perform a search on-line. It is sometimes advisable to make
                 a search of the register before you apply for enforcement to establish if any outstanding judgments have
                 been lodged against the person or company that you seek enforcement against.
Enforcement      The fees charged by the office are set by law. Some fees are fixed whilst others some are charged on a
Fee              scale basis. The fee amount you have to pay is based on the type of enforcement work you seek, and, if
                 it relates to the recovery of money, it will be based on the amount you ask the EJO to recover. Full
                 details of the fees can be found on our fee list within this pack. Payment can be made by cash, cheque,
                 bankers draft, postal order or a debit, or credit card. Postal Orders & Cheques should be made payable
                 to the “Enforcement of Judgments Office” or “EJO”.
Debtor or        This is the person/company that owes the subject matter named on the judgment.
Respondent
Creditor or      This is the person/company that is owed the subject matter named on the judgment.
Applicant
Other Costs      Once a case is accepted for enforcement by the Office and appointed a case reference number (e.g.
                 C/11/01235) there may be further costs/outlay for you the applicant. These are due to legislative
                 requirements and some are costs charged by other bodies for registration of documents. If you have to
                 pay further costs, the office will inform you of this and why these costs are necessary. You can also
                 contact the office on the contact information on page 14 about these costs.

Judgments Search - If money is recoverable on the judgment, then it is advisable to complete a search of the EJO
Register of Judgments before you apply for enforcement. This will establish if any outstanding judgments have been
lodged against the person or company that you seek enforcement against in the 6 years from the date the search was
completed. (Fee at present is £8.00 via the EJO Debt Register Online and is non-returnable. If an ‘officer of court’ in the
EJO conducts the search the fee will be £18.00.

Members of the EJO are trained to provide support and advice about the enforcement process and our forms. We will
also provide further support and advice during the enforcement process and explain the documents that you may receive
from us. However, members of the EJO are not legally trained and cannot provide any legal advice on the effect of the
orders the office issues; they will give simple advice to explain what they mean. You can always seek advice from the
Citizens Advice Bureau, Advice NI or from a qualified legal professional.

The EJO will also perform certain administrative checks on the forms that you send to us; we are responsible to ensure
that the forms are completed in line with regulations and the law, but we are not responsible for the accuracy of the
information stated on the forms. Should any of the forms be incorrect, they will be returned with a reason explaining
why.

Contact numbers for the office are contained on Page 14 and a check list is also available on Page 9 to assist you further.

                              APPLYING TO EJO TO ENFORCE YOUR JUDGMENT

Applying to the EJO to enforce a judgment is a two-stage process which is outlined below:

Stage 1 – Notice of Intention to Enforce a Non-Money Judgment (Form 2)

    1. Complete a Form 2 in duplicate and forward both to EJO together with two copies of the Court Judgment and
       appropriate fee. EJO will serve a copy of the Form 2 and Court Judgment on the Debtor by post. We shall also
       return a copy of the Form 2 and Court Judgment to you.
    2. The Office will also return a covering letter with Notice number and barcode and date Notice was served. This
       confirms that the Form 2 has been successfully served by the EJO on the debtor. The debtor has 10 days from the
       service date of your Notice to adhere to the terms of the Court Judgment or make a suitable arrangement with
       you. You can also recover the fee at this stage if it is included on the Form 2. After 10 days, if the debtor does
       not contact you, or make a suitable arrangement with you, then you can proceed to Stage 2.
    3. The Form 2 lasts for 3 months, in which time you can go to stage 2. If the 3 month lapses then you will need to
       repeat Stage 1 again.

Stage 2 – Application to Enforce a Judgment (Form 4)

    1. Complete Form 4 and forward this to the EJO along with the following papers: -
           a. Court Judgment
           b. Copy of the served Form 2 (along with a copy of the covering letter that has the Notice of Intent number
               and date Notice was served.
           c. If applicable, a taxation certificate confirming the amount of costs which you can also claim.
    2. The appropriate fee should be enclosed and fees are provided in the pack.
    3. Applications can take up to two weeks to be processed and confirmation of acceptance will be sent to you quoting
       the case number allocated to your application. The case number should be quoted at all times on any
       correspondence sent to EJO.
    4. There are a number of other checks the EJO has to take to ensure that you can enforce your court judgment. If we
       reject your application, we will return your papers with a letter of explanation as to why it is being returned and
       return your fee*.
